I was a Primary School teacher for 29 years in Key Stage 1 and 2. My aim is to produce child friendly worksheets and resources to cover all areas of the curriculum. I am particularly interested in language and writing. I write my own stories and poetry, have had these published and will incorporate many into my Literacy resources. I have had resources recommended by TES and have recently been shortlisted for the Bev Evans Award 2017. Please leave a review after purchase.
